Possibly, the ultimate driving machine
Not a lot really. Nothing serious at all, just silly little things that annoy you. Blown bulbs and the ABS system was a bit temperamental at times.
Best bike I've ridden. Very, very comfortable, a real mile muncher and volcanically powerful.
It wasn't a 'bum up head down' job and wasn't the fastest machine on the road, but, if you were prepared to work on it a bit, it could certainly fly.
For such a big machine, the seat wasn't high and even I, a small bloke, could touch down on both sides.
The wind shield was excellent as was the side stand engine immobilizer. The number of times I've taken off on other bikes with the side stand down!
Being a big bike with a car engine, it wasn't very economical and if you pushed it hard, the fuel consumption was pretty dire.
The engine was this bike's gem, reliable, hugely powerful 125BHP and sounded absolutely gorgeous.
If I was riding again today, I'd have another one.
If you're out there Big Bad Blue, I miss you.
Would you buy another motorcycle from this manufacturer? Yes
